    Great interview. This just makes me anticipate the next Jayne Keeney even more. And I hope that the work on surrogacy will — in whole or in part — be accessible online at some point. This is such a frought issue. Recently more celebrities and professionals have been on television discussing how their children were born via surrogates; this is people with a lot of financial means who can afford to do this. Or when reading someone biography online, there is a line that the person has a biological child and one born via surrogate.


    • Thanks for dropping by, Kathy. You can see that I’m not blogging as much as I’m used to, due to the dual demands of tutoring and studying at university. The surrogacy novel is coming along, slowly but surely, in between marking student assignments. Come second semester, I’ll be turning more of my attention to my own writing.

    Well, your loyal fans will gladly wait for your next book, whether Jayne appears or not. I had not realized the surrogacy book will be a novel — Rah! Rah! That intrigues me even more. Will it be have a mystery flavor to it?
